The agenda for the 3rd Annual Cloudera Federal Forum (6 Feb 2014, Hanover MD) has firmed up and will no doubt lead to an incredible event. This will be a great venue for thought leaders from the federal government, great tech firms and very talented integrator firms.
The speakers are a world-class-best mix of data and analysis practitioners, and from what I can tell the attendees will be the real action-oriented professionals from government really making things happen in Big Data analysis. This will be the perfect place to share lessons learned, exchange use-cases, meet others working similar challenges, and help advance the state of analytics in the government space.

The explosive proliferation of IoT solutions will result in an exponential growth in the volume of IoT data, precipitating significant Information Governance issues: who owns the IoT data, what are the rights/duties of IoT solutions adopters towards t...

We’ve seen band-aid approaches like CDNs that attack a niche's slice of static content part of the Internet, but that’s it. It does not address the dynamic services-based Internet of today.
